Paul Manafort and his partner surrendered today to the Federal Government, as the leaks of the indictments by Robert Mueller were, of course, true. I am wondering why Flynn was left out, as there was speculation of his indictment, too. I see what is really happening, as this news comes at a convenient time.
Could it be to take the attention off the Uranium One Scandal and the news that Tony Podesta has stepped down from the Podesta Group? Of course, we know that Tony Podesta is brother of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager.
The Podesta Group has struggled since it has been named in the Mueller investigation. More than a dozen of its lobbying clients have left the firm this year. Revenues have fallen drastically for the Podesta Group, and Tony’s brother, John Podesta is having his own problems, too.
I am not sure how many of you have read about John Podesta lying to the Senate Intelligence Committee about his knowledge of the Trump dossier. Honestly, the lies are so thick, it is hard to cut through them; however, what John Podesta did needs to be made viral. Of course, he was not alone.
In closed-door interviews with the Senate Intelligence Committee, Podesta and Wasserman Schultz (remember her) said they did not know who had funded Fusion GPS, the intelligence firm that hired British Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele to compile the dossier on Trump. Yes, now they have been caught red-handed.
It is unbelievable that Podesta said this while sitting next to his attorney, Marc Elias, who worked for the law firm that hired Fusion GPS to continue research on Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign and DNC.
Later the law firm, Perkins Coie, had to write a letter admitting that it had retained Fusion GPS as part of its representation of the Clinton campaign and the DNC.
Thankfully, the disclosure of the Democratic funding source for Fusion GPS is raising new questions for the Congressional Russian Investigators.
The tweet by Sarah Sanders says it all:
The real Russia scandal? Clinton campaign paid for the fake Russia dossier, then lied about it & covered it up. t.co/kR8z2zsZ7Q

“The real Russia scandal? Clinton campaign paid for the fake Russia dossier, then lied about it & covered it up.”
Revelations have come to light that Perkins Coie and the Washington Free Beacon paid the Fusion GPS to conduct research on Trump, so basically the whole Russia/Trump issue should be a moot point. Right?
This is the part that worries me. The law firm, Perkins Coie, having said they hired Fusion GPS in April 2016, are saying that Clinton was unaware of the dossier prior to the publication, Buzzfeed’s publishing of the document earlier this past year.
So now, the law firm allegedly stands behind the lies of Clinton, Podesta, and Wasserman-Schultz saying they had no idea of what was going on.
What does the Washington Free Beacon say?
The Washington Free Beacon says it hired intelligence firm Fusion GPS during the 2016 Republican presidential primary.
But the conservative news publication denies it had any knowledge or connection to the now-infamous dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump and Russia written by ex-British agent Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by Fusion GPS.
CNN reported in January that senior US intelligence officials briefed then-President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump about the dossier just weeks before Trump’s inauguration.
Earlier this week, CNN reported that the law firm that represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired the firm and entered “into an engagement for research services that began in April 2016 and concluded before the election in early November.”
The Free Beacon said in a statement published on its website Friday that since its inception in February 2012, it “has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers.”
“In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton,” the statement reads.
“The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele,” the statement adds.
According to the statement, Free Beacon representatives told the House Intelligence Committee Friday they would answer questions about the “ongoing probe of Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier.” END OF QUOTE
I am feeling sickened by the constant barrage of lies coming from the Democrats. Thank heavens, Susan Collins feels the same way. Collins said that the Senate intelligence committee should bring senior Democratic Party officials back for testimony after revelations about the party paying intelligence firm Fusion GPS for opposition research on Donald Trump last year. “They absolutely need to be recalled,” the Maine Republican said. It’s difficult to imagine that a campaign chairman, that the head of the DNC would not know of an expenditure of this magnitude and significance, but perhaps there’s something more going on here.”
Collins also said Perkins Coie attorney, Marc Elias, should be brought back to speak with the Intelligence Committee. Collins spoke of the fact that Elias sat by listened to Podesta during his interview with the committee. Basically he sat there while Podesta lied through his teeth.
The fact that the dossier helped fuel the Congressional and Justice Department investigations into Trump and Russia is the most important fact in this whole Democrat conspiracy. The investigators have not been able to corroborate information in the dossier, and if they were going to do so, it should have been done by now.
Therefore, the real issue: the fake dossier and hiring of GPS Fusion by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, is the original instigative act which started the whole thing!
Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is the head of the snake, will eventually begin to eat himself. As no matter how hard he tries, or what kind of scorched earth policy he uses, he will eventually be brought down himself. He needlessly woke Manafort and his wife up from their sleep with guns turned on them. He actually picked their door lock, if you can believe it.
Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . . what exactly is the crime of the century that requires five times the number of lawyers the Justice Department customarily assigns to crimes of the century? No one can say. The growing firm is clearly scorching the earth, scrutinizing over a decade of Manafort’s shady business dealings, determined to pluck out some white-collar felony or another that they can use to squeeze him.
You are forgiven if you can recall only vaguely that supposition about Trump-campaign collusion in Russian espionage against the 2016 election was the actual explanation for Mueller’s appointment as special counsel. To the extent there was any explanation, that is. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee, did not comply with the regulations requiring a description of the crimes Trump’s Justice Department is too conflicted to investigate, purportedly necessitating a quasi-independent special counsel.

Now just what is in the Manafort indictment? www.nationalreview.com/article/453241/paul-manafort-indictment-george-papadopoulos-guilty-plea-trump-russia-collusion QUOTE
- First things first, does the Manafort indictment have anything to do with the Trump campaign? No, not on its face. The indictment relates to Manafort’s personal business dealings with the Ukrainian government, former Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovych, and a Ukrainian political party called the Party of Regions. It remains to be seen whether Special Counsel Mueller will use this indictment as leverage to pressure Manafort to cooperate fully with his much broader investigation into whether there were “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.”
- What does all this mean? This is not the beginning of the end of the Trump/Russia investigation; it’s the end of the beginning. It’s also a reminder that after countless news reports, an indictment, and a guilty plea we are still like the proverbial blind men feeling the elephant. But when you combine the Papadopoulos indictment with previous reports of the 2016 meeting between purported Russian government representatives and Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner, then it appears clear that Russians seemed determined to at least lead Trump-campaign officials to believe that they had negative information on Clinton.
- I heard one of the counts was “conspiracy against the United States.” That sounds like treason. No, it’s not treason. It essentially means that Manafort and Gates conspired together to defeat IRS efforts to enforce tax laws. It’s a common charge under the general federal conspiracy statute, which makes it a crime to “commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose.”
So what are they going to do about the Uranium One Scandal, which in my opinion is a conspiracy against the United States?
Charles Grassley has called for a Special Counsel to investigate the whole Uranium One deal.
And National Review’s Andrew McCarthy puts it like this:
“Here’s the kicker: The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal.
The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their “public service.” The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.”
BREAKING: Corrupt Robert Mueller will soon appear before the House of Representatives judiciary committee & other Congressional hearings regarding allegations that he has covered up the crimes of Hillary Clinton and the Uranium One deal which we broke here last January. Robert Mueller can not be an independent investigator when he is involved with the very Russian collusion he supposedly is investigating! INCREDIBLE HYPOCRISY. When he, Jim Comey, (DOJ- FBI) Andrew McCabe,(FBI) John Brennan,(CIA) Rod Rosenstein,(DOJ) Susan Rice (NSA) Obama etc. were all involved in suppressing and hiding Hillary Clinton crimes and obstructing justice by sitting on evidence related to the Uranium One deal – obscuring truth and facts to Congress and regarding DNC- Hillary “Pay for Play” since 2008! This is just the tip off the iceberg of why this evil guy Robert Mueller, cannot possibly investigate the phony and fake charges of Russian Collusion involving President Donald Trump. Mueller must soon resign once Assange & others begin to publish and distribute his correspondence to suppress evidence of HRC crimes since 2005 – Mueller also was aware of …
- The fake Fusion created Dossier offered by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele as pure lies, slander and defamation of president Trump paid for by the very DNC Mueller has protected in the past.
- The pay for play HRC Uranium One deal where US national security was traded away fro 145 million to Clintons.
- From 2005 on Mueller was involved with Stellar Wind CIA-NSA . warrantless secret spying on American citizens and helped cover up spying by our tax funded intelligence agencies- against GOP candidates from 2008- 2017 – specifically the illegal spying and surveillance of candidate Donald J. Trump and his family and campaign staff. Seems like the tables of justice are now changing and pointing to Mueller, Clinton and so many other DNC crooks. Time for Mueller to recuse himself!
